Hi all, this is my first post here (and as probably 90% of first posts go, its a tech support question).
A week ago i took the step and removed windows from my computer to install Redhat 9.
I liked it...tooled around a bit, couldnt get my videocard to work (thats another thread altogether
)...tried mandrake instead, still couldn't get my videocard to work (or my sound, for that matter), stuck with mandrake b/c it was there...(and my redhat disk 2 is failing on reinstalling some packages).
Now i'm trying to install winXP onto my OTHER hard drive (for a dual-boot machine)... and just cannot get it to work.
I get a corrupted MBR/hard disk "STOP error"...which is odd, b/c one harddrive is brand new, and the other works fine with linux and had windoze on it a week ago.
Does anyone have any guidance (or good links) for a relatively descript walkthrough as to how to get a system with:
2 hard drives ((primary)maxtor 7200 rpm 40 gig for windows // (slave)western digital 5400 rpm 40 gig for linux)
a CDRom drive
NO floppy drive
disks to install Mandrake 8.1(?) WinXP (or 98)
The system has Linux on it now ... and all the info i find is for installing assuming you have Windows already.
ANY way to get it to work is fine...i'm not opposed to formatting everything (all i have is backed up).
I'll flip my jumpers around and move these 2 hdds between master/slave...all i want is windows on maxtor, and linux on western digital.
Any help would be most genuinely appreciated!
